With Shantung, Etro tells a special story of free and noble tribe of nomads wandering the Far East, and of a very special silk cloth they carry with them. Just like in a piece of cloth, the two threads of this story - the nomads and the silk - are woven together so seamlessly that it is impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.
Shandong, situated on the east coast of China, is a place famous far beyond the borders of China itself. Silk from Shandong or Shantung silk as we call it in the West is characterized by natural irregularities in the fabric such as the thickening of individual silk threads, giving the material a unique and rather androgynous charm. Shantung silk is also very versatile and multifaceted.
The exuberantly zesty mandarin notes in the topnotes are enriched by a tangy cassis and sweet, luscious lychee. Rising up from underneath this sparkling, silky opening is a thick layer of smoky, spicy Somalian incense that lends the heart an intense and mesmerizing depth. The contrasting notes in this wonderful scent mimic the natural irregularities and contrasts in the fabric of Shantung silk itself, and borrows some of its quirky charm.
